    Abstract: Spirituality is the search for the sacredness. Carl Gustav Jüng responded to the restoration of an interest in psychological spirituality. His starting point was intrapsychic and based on processes taking place inside a human soul. What might be termed psychological spirituality in the early centuries of Christianity later went underground and was replaced by an externalist stream. The search for transcendence through personal experience and within and through oneself is characteristic of the postmodern era. In this sense, along with the needs of clients, the approach of psychology and its philosophical starting points has also changed. In addition to positivist behaviourism and biologizing freudism, humanistic psychology originated first, followed by transpersonal psychology. Its aim is to achieve internal contact with what goes beyond man: the truth, good, beauty, perfection, order, eternity, unity and the like. It offers man to unblock his deeper spiritual potential. The dialogue between psychology and theology lives from the tension between the desire to know and understand and the area of mystery to which only faith has access. Where the Christian faith lives, there must also be the courage to differentiate.

    Keywords: Psychological spirituality. Intrapsychic. Soul. Transpersonality. Dialogue. Differentiation.
